Not just for adults there are art stations set up in a part of downtown for kids, its a very fun event!

MISTI Style ( Stylist of Houston)


I had the chance to meet up with Misti today at her AMAZING STUDIO SPACE
!!! here are a few pictures I took of her fantastic downtown Houston view!

SOoo there is a happy little venture that im taking with Misit Pace-Krahl; I will be helping with some of her events that she holds coming soon, of a Dallas based designer..Stay tuned my loveys.

The heads outside of their studio are from the creator of the 'Big Sam" (the statue on the way to sam houston) his name is David Adicks. 
Brief Bio of this 86 year old man... just because he is interesting.

After graduating from Sam Houston State University with degrees in both math and physics in 1948, Adickes went to the Kansas City Art Institute. He studied painting there, and then went to Paris where he studied art for two years.

He returned briefly to Houston in 1951, but was soon off to Paris, Barcelona and Tahiti. Returning to his native land, Adickes taught art at the University of Texas in Austin.
In 1957, he lived for a year in Japan and then traveled extensively over the next 10 years in the Far East, Mid East, Europe, Russia and North Africa. 
His oils and sculptures are displayed in ten major art museums across America and in many countries, as well as private collections.

Cheaper Whitening Solution?!

I thought this was interesting, haven't gotten to try it yet

7. Brighten Your Smile
Mix your own whitener
Brushing with a paste made of baking soda and water a few times a month removes superficial staining and whitens teeth by a shade or two. "The graininess neutralizes stains and polishes teeth but isn't abrasive enough to wear down your enamel," says Jennifer Jablow, DDS, a cosmetic dentist in New York City.
Keep teeth whiter, longer
To sidestep stains when drinking red wine, chase your vino with a handful of crunchy raw vegetables. They have a brushing action that can rub away newly setting stains
Choose the right lipstick shade
"Colors with blue undertones make teeth appear brighter," explains Liebeskind. To figure out which of your lipsticks fit the bill, she recommends lining up three or four shades—in comparison to each other, it will be more obvious which are blue-based and which have yellow or gold undertones that bring out the yellow in teeth.

I spend hours upon hours looking for the right layout.. something simple, yet will still catch you're eye and intrigue you to read more. I came across what all you bloggers probably already know about.. i adore it and will be using it more often; its so simple to use but has a great layout.. this makes blogging even more enticing!

Missoni and Pucci have the best prints! I love this little dress, Chanel Straw bag and im finally joining the gladiator sandal trend for summer!

Health Care Reform Bill

Well... if you didn't already know.. today is the day that we will see Obama's Health care reform bill passed into law or not.

Democrats need 216 votes to pass each one. With all 178 Republicans and at least two dozen Democrats vowing to vote no, the legislation's fate lay in the hands of the Democrats who remained uncommitted ahead of Sunday's vote.

If Democratic leaders prevail on all three House votes, Obama could sign the Senate version of the bill into law. The bill of "fixes" would go to the Senate under fast-track debate rules, called reconciliation, that would enable Democrats to pass it without facing a Republican filibuster.

The legislation, affecting virtually every American and more than a year in the making, would extend coverage to an estimated 32 million uninsured, bar insurers from denying coverage on the basis of existing medical conditions and cut federal deficits by an estimated $138 billion over a decade.

* I understand the need for more people to get insured and I would agree in not allowing the insurance companies to deny some with already pre existing medical conditions.. but really... im on the fence on this one.. its always hard for me to really believe the government when they say they are trying to do something for the people.. they always have a hidden agenda...*

post comments as you wish.

The Nude Heal ..ughh complete OBSESSION! perfect for spring or summer

I mean really, the nude heal is compatiable with any and everything... skinny jeans.. denium capris, a summery dress, even a business pencil skirt. Great transition to day and night.

My favorite duo; Husband and Wife jewelry designers, right here in Houston!
Watch out for this Houston based model BRENDA,on ANTM ..America's Next Top Model cycle 14!
check out here official fan page!


Ropes with rings and knots on strings
Jason and Jessica have created a palette of different and sumptuous jewelry ranging from chunky knit necklaces with draping chain to thinner knits, diaphanous in texture.

The label is Lilahgabriel. It brings together the talents of a husband and wife who are young and growing in their ability and inspiration. Jason brings with him extensive experience in jewelry design and jewelry making. Jessica, a Pratt graduate, has terrific experience in fashion and graphic design and in the making of apparel. They have made each piece a balance of function and form. The materials and their construction meld to complement each other and the individual wearing it.

Lilahgabriel uses silks, organzas, leather, denim, and metals. The different recipes result in rich saturated colors in pieces that look so natural. The metals are intense but don’t dominate. Look through the collection and you will see how classical materials are used in harmony with a modern, unique style.

It’s a collection that truly reflects the unpretentious talents of its creators.

I had to post this asap!

Thought this was the most adorable thing ever! Eating Tomato soup and grilled cheese on this rainy saturday.. " I said lets take a picture for dada" ... these are the smiles they bust out with.. Maddie is popeye ;)

For my first post it has to be something im loving and crazy for at this moment, and that is ...LIPS!..spring color palate shown below.. the purple makes me giddy, I use to rock it out in first grade.. glad to see it back

Spring Color Palate ..Choose one or many ..there is no wrong choice
Julie Hewett Jacqueline Bijou Lipstick
A pale pinky lilac inspired by a vintage photo of Jackie O.
Shu Uemura Égérie Rouge Unlimited Lipstick in Nude Beige
A classic cool nude that feels very sixties Shrimpton; for maximum effect, pair with a heavy, smoky eye.
Lancôme Color Design Matte Lipstick in Posh Pink
With none of the moisture-zapping chalkiness of its matte lipstick counterparts, the best new shade of the Mix & Matte collection is a clean, bright fuchsia.
$22, exclusively at Macy’s and
Rimmel Moisture Renew Lip Colour in Berry Queen
A punchy, berry shade that is more pink than red; at a mere $7, it’s the perfect cheap thrill.
$7, at drugstores.
Josie Maran Argan-Infused Lipstick in Bambolina (SECOND FAV)
A true cotton candy pink that’s totally natural, so your tendency to lick off your lip color won’t be such a bad thing.
YSL Rouge Volupté in Rose Paris
Don’t be fooled by the name; this is no rose. More like a flashy orange-pink hybrid.
NARS Lipstick in Cruising (THIRD FAV)
A dusty rose-tinged beige inspired by Catherine Deneuve in La Chamade.
Guerlain Rouge G Le Brillant in Brit
A sparkling light pink that has the signature, ridiculously delicious Guerlain lipstick scent.
Revlon Color Burst Lipstick in Coral
Research has shown that lipstick is an instant mood-lifter, and this intense orangey coral is like happiness in tube form.
Revlon Color Burst Lipstick in Grape ( MY FAVORITE)
Purple lipstick has graced many a runway; this deep grape is sheer, so it doesn’t feel too goth-y, making it a great darker hue for spring.
